Hi there.
Out of curiousity I have done some googling on the following directory,
%UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Installer\{GUID}
I havent found much information on the actual use of this directory when an
application is installed.
Can anyone provide me with some information regarding, why this directory is generally created at installation?
Thank you very much,
Kind regards :)

As far as i have seen, this should be the temp. location to extract the files.

Im not so sure as I thought the %userprofile%\local settings\temp is the folder that is used to hold the temporary files...
